Should pecans be refrigerated?
In respect to this, how do you store fresh pecans?
At home, pecan kernels may be kept in the refrigerator in a covered glass jar or in plastic bags. In-shell pecans can be stored at room temperature for a short period of time. Keep in a refrigerator, if so desired, to keep for longer than 4 months.
Subsequently, question is, how can you tell if pecans are bad? Rancid pecans will often develop a bitter, unpleasant taste; if pecans develop an off odor or taste, or if mold appears, they should be discarded.
Likewise, how long can you keep pecans in the refrigerator?
about nine months
Can Rancid pecans be saved?
Because nuts contain a high percentage of oil, they can become rancid more quickly in warm weather. You can store them at room temperature for up to a month. But after that, place nuts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to six months or in the freezer for up to a year.
